Longitude: -6.165502, Latitude: 52.983496 , Easting: 323262, Northing: 194066 Prominence: 174m,  Isolation: 3.4km,   Has trig pillar

Bedrock type: Greywacke & quartzite, (Bray Head Formation)

The name of this hill is documented in various forms, such as Carrigmurrely in 1756 and Carrickmacreily in 1795. It is fairly certain that the second element is a personal name, but the forms are too diverse to specify which name. Price mentions the possibility that it is Ó Murghaile.   Carrick Mountain is the 992nd highest place in Ireland.

If I got there quicker than you it's because I was...
by Bunsen7  18 Dec 2017
Visited on a beautiful, mild sunny day in Dec 2017. Parked at the forest entrance at Ballylusk as suggested by Track 1291, which I followed. Also had the benefit of the East-West Mapping East Wicklow map which just about includes the bulk of Carrick Mtn, showing the various forest tracks and trails, well at least those needed for this approach.

Lots of evidence that this area is well used by mountain bikers and horse riders. A proliferation of tracks are to be found, but thankfully in a largely pristine forest, no evidence of dumping - long may that continue.

I was conscious that I was effectively standing on the shoulders of giants given the info and forewarnings on this site, the map and gps. In fairness it seems the tracks marked on the OS are relatively useful. If you follow the OS tracks you can get to an altitude of 350m from where you will need to find one of the tracks to the true summit.

Still, I managed to be drawn initially to the rocky prominences near T23504 94425 G, from where the views northwards were stunning and unobstructed. This meant I had to find my way through dense forestry to the true summit, and clamber up some slippery rock, over large fallen trees, etc.

However, from the summit proper there is now a very clear track emerging almost directly east which I descended from and which by my reading leads you out onto the forest track at T23444 94039 H. If you or your group are looking for the easy way to the trig pillar do not get drawn to the earlier rocky prominences and instead keep a careful eye out for this narrow track.

Worth the trip this one. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/865/comment/19814/
